Holding "Informtest" engaged in the development manufacture and supply consumers with specialized functional systems of control and verification of complex airborne systems in major space and aviation applications built on open standards technology VXI, LXI, AXIe. In addition, the kits are sold VXI modules, VXI racks, controllers and embedded computers, the LXI instruments, mezzanine instruments and software.
Holding "Informtest" currently produces 130 types of VXI modules, 6 types of VXI mainframes, type 2 controllers, 2 types of embedded computers, type 2 LXI racks, mezzanine 47 types of meters.
The first and most important activity is the development and manufacture of systems for the functional control of space and aviation equipment. These are control systems for airborne units, systems for autonomous control of on-board computers and a system for testing the spacecraft in assembly. Software for these systems is usually written by consumers themselves. However, for many systems, Informtest Holding also supplies top-level software. Over the period from 2000 to 2012, consumers were supplied with more than 120 systems of this type.
Development of manufacturing and delivery of telemetric systems for bench tests of space and aviation equipment. Telemetric systems supplied by Informtest Holding are built on a modular basis using the mezzanine technology of "synthetic instruments" (meters, 48 types, performed in the mezzanine version and installed on carrier in the VXI, LXI, AXIe standards).
Supply to consumers of modular serial control systems for cable networks TEST-9110-VXI in various modifications from portable to stationary. For the period from 2006 to 2016 soldmore than 200 products series TEST-9110.This system is the best-selling of all products of the holding "Informtest" and has a serial certificate of type approval of dual-purpose measuring instruments. Also in 2010, the delivery of modular digital control systems to the consumers of a new generation TEST-6408, Built on the basis of the new 64-channel digital I/O module of the OLS.
Development and delivery of modular control systems for RF devices and assemblies. This direction is new in our activity and started from 2009. As of the end of 2016, a whole family of VXI and LXI modules and mezzanine meters has been developed for verification of RF devices.This 6 GHz transceiver in the mezzanine version, switches up to 26.5 GHz, a spectrum analyzer up to 10 GHz, Upconverter up to 10 GHz, Downconverter up to 10 GHz, rubidium frequency standard, VXI switch up to 18 GHz, etc..In 2010- and 2011 we started to supply our new signal generator MGVCH and the new oscilloscope MOSTS-6. In 2012, the first own digital receiver MOS1 (mezzanine version) has no analogues in Russia. These devices have already become the basis for new RF systems for various purposes.
Development of custom modules according to the Customer's Technical Reference. From 2000 to 2016 it was developed more than 50 custom VXI modules and mezzanines. Often, these are specialized interfaces or special modules. This approach allows the consumer to significantly reduce the cost of his system in which the custom part and the standard part are allocated and the development of only the custom part is paid. Such RND are performed quickly and much cheaper than new developments from scratch.
In 2012, we joined the AXIe consortium and began the first development in the latest international standard AXIe focused on ultra-high-speed telemetry systems, chip monitoring systems, etc. The first developments in AXIe appeared in 2013. Now we have full line of chassis (4,6,9 and 14 modules and 6 modules monoblock) and system modules and mezzanine carriers.
Distribution activities.Holding Informtest is a distributor of several American high-tech companies whose products are sold separately or used in our systems. This cooperation lasts a long time and is constantly expanding.
The most important element of all control systems is software for various purposes. Holding Informtest delivers several specialized software systems, working with our systems. It is AKM and AFK-9110 software for TEST-9110 series systems, Informtest-Registrar and Informtest-Expert for telemetry systems, Qt Informtest registrar for registration and control systems, D-Test for digital node control systems TEST-6408, Functional control TEST-BA, CAT and other software packages. All devices from Informtest Holding have VXI LXI plug & play open drivers whose source codes are available to consumers in accordance with the requirements of open standards.
The use of open technology AXIe, VXI and LXI allow us to obtain the highest level of unification of our test systems. The same devices are used in a variety of systems, which reduces spare parts and simplifies the construction of systems. This technology is not new and many world leaders have been working on it for a long time. This technology is widely used by foreign manufacturers of space and aviation equipment: Boeing, Lockhid Martin, EADS, BAE system, Nortrop-Grumman, etc., which are actively building their own control and measuring equipment based on open standards.
The ideology of construction of test systems in open standards has found its response in the most important Russian consumers. Among our consumers ISS Reshetnev, the State Space Research and Space Center. Khrunichev, RSC Energia, Keldysh Center, NPO Energomash, NPO Lavochkin, NPC Module, Concern RTI Systems, RSK MIG, MMP Salyut, CIAM Baranova, NPO IT, Aviapribor, and many other...
